Sotheby's Paris sells some very ewe-nique pieces.


PARIS – The 20th Century Decorative Arts & Contemporary Design was the most successful ever staged by Sotheby’s in Paris. The top price of the sale went to a flock of 12 sheep by François-Xavier Lalanne, a rare intact group that has not been split up since their creation in the late 1960’s, which sold for €1,744,750 ($2.3 million).
